I have acquired a few Trichocereus (grandiflorus, spachianus).

Does anyone know how large these Cactus need to be before they bloom ?

Thanks.

I've had new plants bloom that were only 3 or 4 inches tall. That is in very good light indoors, or outdoors in morning sun only.

Yes, unlike Ferocactus, Trichocereus bloom early and often. Smiling

Thank you both for your replies......

Now, I have Trichocereus peruvianus Icaros San Pedro and
Trichocereus pachanoi, San Pedro Cactus

Both are due to arrive in the mail this week. Has anyone grown either of
these ?
Thank You!
